Film Review: Indie Director (2013)

Indie-Director-2013-movie-Bill-Zebub-2

SYNOPSIS:

Metalhead film director Bill Zebub toils, trying to maintain his integrity, in the world of no-budget, subversive, genre film making.

REVIEW:

Any review of INDIE DIRECTOR would be misguided–incomplete–without an introduction to its notorious creator, Bill Zebub. Maybe you’ve heard of him. Maybe you haven’t. In any case, he’s brash, manic, politically incorrect, obsessed with heavy metal music–and nudity–and, for the past two decades, has been churning out twisted, no-budget shock … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:

In a small town, people are being murdered by having their throats cut.

REVIEW:

Tiny Tim took the world by storm in the late 1960s. He covered a song called Tiptoe Through the Tulips with a ukulele and skyrocketed to popularity. Sadly, it would be his only popular song. The novelty would soon wear off and Tiny Tim would fade away from the pop culture zeitgeist and enter obscurity. In 1987, he re-emerged … Continue reading
